Knowing quite a bit about the inside happenings at MVP and how much work has gone into perfecting their process and products, I'd hardly call it simple or easy. Baseline plastics are totally different from urethane, have different shrink rates, different bonding characteristics, etc. I'm pretty sure MVP has done some preliminary research/testing into this without positive results. They understand the technical issues with it much better than I, but I'm not sure they want to get into the specifics.

Edit...I guess Chad did want to explain.
